Mr. Brainwash – Brigitte Bardot (42 x 36)

Mr. Brainwash, Brigitte Bardot is an Original Silkscreen and Mixed Media on Paper. Mr. Brainwash’s special signature is on the back including a thumbprint and dollar bill sequence.  Artwork comes with official Mr. Brainwash certificate of authenticity with corresponding half dollar bill.

Brigitte Bardot was considered one of the great sex symbols of the 1950s and 1960s, and often appeared naked or semi-naked in films. From her early films and photos, she helped to popularise the bikini – a new fashion of wearing minimal swimwear.

Mr. Brainwash practices an irreverent brand of appropriation characterized by the use of images from history, popular culture, and art history. The artist subtly alters the picture or its context, mischievously undermining the tone of the source material. Brainwash, a pseudonym for Thierry Guetta, is known for producing massive spectacles to display his art. He came to prominence through mounting large-scale public projects in his current home of Los Angeles and as the main figure in the Banksy-directed film Exit Through the Gift Shop. His work hinges on the idea that anything is possible in his practice. “Art has no walls. Anybody can be an artist,” he says. “Art has no rules. There’s no manual.”
